American Idol Top 8 – The Explanation

First, my sincerest apologies for missing you all last week. Last Tuesday, a dear friend of mine, Gregory Cross, died suddenly of a massive heart attack. He was only 47 years old. Wrap your minds around that one.

While you all are very supportive and some of my great friends, I just didn’t feel like blogging. I didn’t really feel like doing anything. But, as it was, I had tons I had to do so I didn’t do anything that wasn’t imperative. I knew you guys would understand.

His memorial was last night. While I still don’t want to do a whole lot, I know Greg and I know his life – it was fun and he brought fun to all those around him. He would still want to bring the fun.

And I think hanging out with you guys is fun…

So, in loving memory of my wonderful friend Greg, this is your American Idol.


  1. How tragic April. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was three months older than me to the day. Kinda puts things in perspective….

  2. Awww April I love this picture… I have it on my blog… I still miss him so much… Today I was sad…. Sadder then I acutally w anted to be… but you know life… I had to push through it… And I did… Can you tell me when this is going to stop hurting so much…

  3. I am so sorry. He was blessed to have people in his life like you who truly cared about him and was touched by his presence.
